Absolutely gorgeous and so many opportunities to see wildlife and further experience the country. Great hikes and butterfly place was incredible

Such a small butterfly farm, there’s nothing at all, we met least than 50 butterflies. It’s so warm inside the farm. Even though a trail walk to the beach is no fun at all, too sunny, no shading along the trail. Not worth for five...More

Chaco Verde is a beautiful nature reserve on the shores of Lake Nicaragua that contains a small lagoon. While walking around, we saw tons of monkeys, birds, and butterflies. I definitely recommend stopping here while visiting Ometepe.

I wouldn't call this a must do but it was certainly enjoyable. We went in the evening and there were howler monkeys playing over our heads. We spent about 2 hours walking around.

The Laguna Charco Verde has some great trails for exploring around the lagoon. After visiting the mariposaria and spying a few butterflies, we explored around the lagoon and its beautiful and peaceful environs. A symphony of birds trailed our every move. Our best moment was...More

We went there with bus, which was great experience, and then there is 10 min walk to entrance. If you go straight you can take a swim on the beach near hotel, and there is restaurant too. It is enough, you do not need to...More

We visited with our guide then carried on to see petroglyphs and Ojo de Agua. We started at the butterfly house which entranced us (I had thought it might be a bit corny) loads of huge butterflies and interesting vegetation, with informative signs in English...More

We had a wonderful time here. The beach was quiet and peaceful. We walked far enough from the entrance to the beach that we had a place all to ourselves. It was a beautiful day and the water was a nice temperature.

As we traveled through Panama and then Nicaragua, my wife and I were growing impatient not yet having seen howler monkeys. The the short, roughly 2 mile, hike around Lago Chaco Verde made our month. We got there early, around 0830 hrs, skipped the butterfly...More
